I just got back from this tour after a week, I just cannot describe how amazing it was on this tour. We got to see so many cool places that I thought I would never visit in my entire life. The tour guide Andy was extremely helpful and funny too, he kept us all entertained. I really hope I could just take these tours every day of my life, but sadly that is not possible. Anyway, the dolphin cruise was the part for me on this tour. Who would have thought, I would take these wonderful photos with dolphins. It was just amazing. Thank you.

I am very much into travelling different places. In last vocation, I planned to visit US, I chose this plan because it covers areas of my interest. I experience with this tour company was no doubt very good. Tour guides were very cooperativeand worth knowledge historical places, overall tour was planned in a good way, one day tour was slightly changed due to the weather condition. Houston tour was very informative specially trip to NASA.  Night Tour in San Antonio was very relaxing and amazing, it was the best time.

After spending 5 years in Europe, I just got back to my home state of Texas. I thought I should take a tour of the places that I want to see ever since I was a kid. I’m usually cautious about going on a bus tour with a company that I don’t even know, but these guys are professional. They guide me through each process, and to be honest, this company has the best prices out there in the market, and they still provide way more than we paid for. I’m really satisfied with your services, I would definitely recommend this to my friends. Also, hotel choices were great, thumbs up for that.

My husband and I had a wonderful time on this bus trip. Whole journey was amazing but I can never forget the day I spent in Houston.It was fun experience watching the dolphin, we sat on a boat with one other family, seven passengers in all. Our guiders were very knowledgeable of the area and full of information.
